Hi-Rise Bread Bakery

Posted Feb 23 2009 11:42pm

Last week, we had a couple of nice-ish days in Cambridge, so during my lunch break, I ventured out into Harvard Square to explore my new surroundings. On my walk, I stumbled upon this cute sign:

Then, set back from the main road, I saw this:

I was very intrigued by what I saw, so I popped into Hi-Rise Bread Bakery * to check it out.

When I walked in the door of Hi-Rise, these two signs immediately caught my attention. One advertised yummy-sounding and interesting flavored soups; the other promoted an environmentally-friendly practice. Both of these signs made me want to find out more about this little bakery.

Inside, the bakery was cozy and quint with a small counter and display case. (I later discovered seating for patrons upstairs.) The menu offered soups, sandwiches, quiches, and all kinds of scrumptious-looking baked goods.

Holy yum!

After a little indecision (and a lot of drooling), I decided on the Oatmeal Coconut Pecan cookie, which ended up being an excellent choice. I even changed my status on Facebook to honor this amazing cookie! ;-)

Check out the whole pecans baked right into the cookie!

The Oatmeal Coconut Pecac cookie was firm, but at the same time, soooo incredibly soft, almost muffin-like, on the inside. Pieces of shredded coconut pervaded the inside of the cookie. Mmmmm!

* My boss informed me that the Hi-Rise location near Harvard Square is actually the satellite location, which is much smaller. The main Hi-Rise Bread Bakery is in Huron Village.
